November 14 - Shirt Bag

I had the best time making today's project! I heard murmurings from friends about a bag you can make out of a t-shirt, and with a little searching online, I found more details.

This is the shirt I chose from my scrap bin. This shirt has seen its better days. It's stretched out, shrunk in length, and the fabric is fading.

I followed the directions in the linked videos above, and look what I made!

I did one thing differently than the directions showed. I kept the neckline just like it was on the shirt. The directions said to cut down deeper on the neckline to make longer handles, but I liked the reinforced neck. I think it will make a stronger bag in the long run for all of my farmer's market finds!
